Top Customer Reviews
He begins each chapter with the basics-clearly defining terms-then delves to a level that covers the topic well, with good insight and understanding. I was pleased with how much I learned in each chapter. Then I really like how he ends his chapters with an action paragraph, i.e. "what's the minimum a prepper should do with regard to . . . ?", presenting a good summation of initial goals to reached.
Unlike some instructional prepper books this one was easy to read, and even includes some humorous insights and comments (more than once I laughed out loud)-Charlie definitely doesn't take himself too seriously.
I appreciate that he recommends specific brands. Sure we can all "Google" things ourselves, but it's nice to have personal recommendations that the author likes and uses. I also like that there are things he recommends, but admits that he doesn't use -- but would if he could (or needed to). And I completely agree when he stresses, a "...general rule of prepping, whenever possible, test your preparations. Things don't always work out as you'd expect."
However there are things I didn't agree with him on. For example, he believes you should only store a small amount of fuel for a generator and/or bug out vehicle, for safety reasons. I think you should do the math, figuring out how long you'd like to run your generator and/or how far you'd need to drive your bug out vehicle, then store that amount of fuel and have an established system to rotate it so it doesn't go bad.
I thoroughly enjoyed Charlie's book.Read more ›
This book was dissapointing for me as I expected more information that would prepare one in an urban setting.
